Building Young Champions, on and off the Mat


Youth Sports Partners: Saddleback Valley Pop Warner

If your athlete is in elementary or middle school, it is important that s/he plays and tries multiple sports.  One sport that meshes very well with wrestling is football.  We have recently partnered up with a great youth football organization: Saddleback Valley Pop Warner.  Football is great at building aggressiveness, strength, and a love for contact that easily transfers over to the wrestling mat.  The best thing is that football is in the fall and wrestling is in the winter, so you can participate in both sports! Registration for their 2015 season is under way.  Get on it!

So Far in 2014-15

We have gotten off to a great start so far this year!  Lots of action in December: two tournaments–El Dorado and Megatron–and 4 scrimmages: Valdez, two San Clemente scrimmages, and Laguna Hills/Marco Forrester Middle School.  As we move into January, we have a lot of momentum!

Here are some highlights:

*At the El Dorado tournament, we had 28 competitors, 16 medalists, 7 of them first place. Nate Garrison, Will Garrison, Craig Phoenix, Jake Herrera, Osten Dandan, Diego Garcia, Max Park, Caleb Park, Max Callas, all medaled.  Jorge Gonzalez, Ian Rudner, Kyler Petronis, Josh Bentley, Treyvon Shodja, William Burks, and Sam Callas all took first.
